Art galleries and museums are beginning to fill gaping cultural holes in their collections with African American artists who have been ignored for decades and one of the artists receiving recognition and commanding six-figure commissions is my current art obsession JULIE MEHRETU. What I love about Julie’s work is the explosiveness of action on canvas and how she fearlessly uses modern techniques to create an end result that is not only bold but thought-provoking.

Other living artists featured on ZR who are rightfully receiving the recognition they deserve in galleries and museums around the world include:

Mark Bradford
Njideka Akunyili Crosby
Glenn Ligon
Kerry James Marshall
Chris Ofili
Kara Walker
